The jury in the Apple vs Samsung case has found that Samsung has indeed infringed on Apple's software patents for look and feel of its devices.

The jury decided that Samsung infringed the patents on mulitple devices. The D'677 design recieved a yes from the jury which covered devices such as the Vibrant and Galaxy S II. On the '087 patent, a yes again to almost all of the devices, including the Galaxy S, Infuse 4G, Epic 4G Touch, and S2 Skyrocket. The jury also found the same with the '305 patent with Samsung infringing with multiple devices. Some devices did not infringe, however the ones that did are clearly outweighing those that didn't.

The jury decided that Samsung did not infringe on the iPad's design with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi or 4G LTE, but did infringe on the iPhone 3G design causing a dilution of the devices' trade dress.

For its various violations of patents, Samsung must pay Apple $1,051,855,000 in damages:

$57 million for the Samsung Prevail

$53,123,612 for the Mesmerize

$44,792,974 for the Infused 4G

$3,350,256 for the Replenish

$954,060 for the Transform
